Manny Pacquiao Interested In MMA?

Quote:
By Mark Vester

During a recent press conference, BoxingScene.com's Bill Emes and Michael Marley cornered Manny Pacquiao on the subject of Mixed Martial Arts. Pacquiao said he watched MMA and UFC, but said it was "too brutal" when asked for his thoughts on the sport.

When asked if he would ever consider trying his hand at Mixed Martial Arts, Pacquiao replied to BoxingScene - "I want to, but they [promters and management] don't want me to fight."

He said if promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank and adviser Michael Koncz said it was okay, he would consider entering the cage. Michael Koncz cut in at that point and told Pacquiao - "you know that you could do what you want."

It's hard to tell if Pacquiao was serious or just joking around.

It would be awesome if he did.

I doubt he'd ever actually do it. His boxing career is too good to risk looking bad in the cage. I will say though that I've often dreamed of what it would be like if Bruce Lee came back to life and fought in MMA. ooo

it wouldnt be in the UFC, thats for sure.

Bob Arum would never allow it. Manny is so big he could promote his own MMA show, just for that fight. In typical boxing fashion you could have a stellar undercard of nobodies and a main card full of somewhat more signifigant nobodies.

Still, ppl line up to see Manny throw down. It could be vs a can and ppl would pay.

Thats what i would expect, them to line him up with an inexperienced striker or something.

He does have the right kind of style for MMA, blinding speed, aggressive and can pop in and out faster than Frankie Edgar on speed. He used to train Muay Thai before boxing so im sure he could learn some kicks quickly.

Ground game?? well, dont fight any ground game guys. He would be hard to catch in a cage but still, you cant become a competent grapper in a year, nevermind a good one.
